Three years after using two first-round draft picks and a fourth-round draft pick to acquire him, the Bills are moving on from Sammy Watkins.
Watkins, the talented but so far disappointing wide receiver, has been traded to the Rams. To replace him, the Bills have acquired receiver Jordan Matthews from the Eagles.

The Bills announced that they’ve shipped Watkins and a sixth-round draft pick to the Rams for cornerback E.J. Gaines and a second-round draft pick. Separately, the Bills announced that they sent cornerback Ronald Darby to the Eagles for Matthews and a third-round draft pick.
I just don’t get trading your #1 guy. Especially after you pick up Anquan Bolden. Bolden isn’t a #1 at this point in his career, but he would have been a nice addition to Watkins. What he heck are the Bills thinking?
